This is an old tired boat, that is poorly staffed and represents terrible value for money. Our room. *Rooms are not cleaned properly, we found old pool towels from the previous passengers in our cabin. It took three days and three requests to get new ones. *An old piece of chewing gum under the lamp shade next to my bed did not impress. *The cabinetry in our room was misaligned and ...

My experience overall was very good. The Ship was beautiful, well maintained. Our cabin was well appointed, and clean. Having a balcony was great. You cannot fault the service. All staff at any level are polite and courteous, Willing to help make your experience cruising very pleasurable. The entertainment was enjoyable, easy to book using the MSC App. Embarkation was easy , no fuse, no ...

MSC Cruises ruined our European vacation. First, MSC informed us that—congratulations! Your cruise is now 1 day longer for the same price! You’ll now disembark at Athens on Tuesday May 21! Except that we had already booked both non-refundable flights and hotels. We called MSC and asked about leaving the ship a day early. They told us that it was absolutely possible to depart early, simply ...

Worst cruise we have ever been on

Where do I even begin. Starting with the paid cruise parking in Genoa, there were absolutely no signs or indications of where to find the entrance, except for an African American gentlemen roaming the streets near the port, stopping cars and offering to explain where the parking entrance is for monetary compensation. Next thing to note, if you don't purchase the alcohol package, the only things ...

I recently sailed on the MSC Splendida, and unfortunately, it was the worst cruise I’ve ever experienced. The crew’s attitude was far from welcoming, leaving us feeling unwelcome and frustrated. The buffet area was consistently messy. Dirty tables and unclean utensils were a common sight. It’s disappointing when basic hygiene standards are not met. It’s disheartening when such fundamental ...

Second time on MSC and second YC experience. I'm quite used to the Haven from NCL and I've tried the Retreat and the Star Class. Even though the price with MSC is waaayy lower, the service from the staff is outstanding. Not that it's not also the case with NCL, RCI or Celebrity, but MSC add a little more IMO. For instance, where NCL, RCI do escort you out the ship in every ports, MSC escorts you ...

Pros are supposed to go before cons, so I will put the positives first, but please don’t miss the negatives later in this review, because although there were a few redeeming qualities, make no mistake, I would never sail with MSC again. First positive, all the staff below the managerial level deserve to be commended for being true, if not powerless, delights. We had many wonderful interactions ...

If I could give no stars I would. I joined a world cruise with MSC and have had nothing but frustration and grievances. If you are a parent I highly suggest considering another cruise line. A child was assaulted by an adult passenger and when the parents filed a complaint after bringing him to the medical center, nothing was done but a warning. The baby pool on the cruise was under maintenance ...

Beware of sailing with MSC, not worth the money.

It was supposed to be a highlight of our lives and it turned out to be the biggest disappointment of our lives. We understand that is was not their fault that a big junk of the planned itinerary had to be changed due to the hostilities in the middle east. Among other places we were supposed to visit Greenland. They planned to go there in April and we obviously did not go to Greenland either. ...

My husband and I embarked on this cruise, despite a radically changed itinerary, because MSC refused our request for a refund. However, our experience was so awful that we disembarked on day 20 of 85 in Walvis Bay, Namibia, and flew home from there. Better to forfeit the unused cruise fare than to continue to subject ourselves to the cruise line’s utter disdain for passengers and 65 more days of ...
